Sunderland drew level before half-time, though, with Amad scoring an excellent equaliser following Alex Pritchard’s short free-kick.

The hosts then took the lead midway through the second half when Trai Hume headed home Jack Clarke’s cross.

It means Sunderland will take a lead into Tuesday’s second leg at Kenilworth Road.

Taking to social media after the game, Louis-Dreyfus said: "Thank you for your support this season - the Stadium of Light was incredible today and our players and staff also deserve a special mention for their hard work behind the scenes throughout the year.

"We have a long way to go and Tuesday's match will be tough but I know the team will give everything #TilTheEnd."
